Sneak preview: May 11th General Tenants Meeting

There was a recent RENT STABILIZATION court decision 
that will likely impose an increase on all tenants whose rents are below $1000.   

After two victories in the lower and middle courts - tenants lost and there can be no further appeal.

So come hear (and read)  how YOUR rent will be affected by this decision - and what you can do about it*  - and how we can stop the countdown to the expiration of the State's rent laws!

Sen. Perkins & Sen. Espaillat with the Countdown Clock

_______________________________________

* SOME of the things we can do

(1) Attend the Rally at 4:30 and testify at Rent Guidelines Board hearings, especially on Tuesday, May 3rd .  Ask your neighbors to join you as you explain ("testify") how rent increases affect YOU.

(2) Go to Albany with the Real Rent Reform Campaign on Tuesday, May 3rd.   Educate your neighbors about the rent laws.  (Most people in rent stabilization are low- or moderate income.  We need our homes - and the rights that come with rent stabilization - protected!)
